Tournament: Copa América. Match for the 3rd place.
The match for the 3rd place in frames of the Copa America will be held between Argentina and one loser of the semifinal – Chile.
Albiceleste has spent terrible tournament. For the team which has got Lionel Messi, Sergio Agüero, Paulo Dybala, Ángel Di María, Leandro Paredes, Giovani Lo Celso they are rather weak in attack. More than that, they have scored the goals only to Paraguay (1:1) from penalty and Qatar (2:0).
Also, Venezuela has been won over in ¼ final with the score 2:0 but all these teams are lower in class though they had chances to gain a positive outcome for themselves.
Games with Columbia in the group and with Brazil in semifinal have ended with the same score (0:2) and to some extent for this Argentina, the getting into the semifinal was more than enough and only thanks to the rival in frames of the ¼ final.
Chile has lost the title of the winner of the tournament having lost to Peru with the score 0:3. La Furia Roja was rather good in attack and was pressing the defense of the rival even in the semifinal they did well but didn’t manage to score.
But the Red Team has got some problems in defense, defense line which is quite good according to names is making some mistakes on this tournament. Also, the goalkeeper Gabriel Arias is good but is not an example of 100% reliability.
It was he who “has taken” the 2nd goal in the semifinal which made it possible to the rival to focus on counterattacking game having a right for mistake. This made Chile be nervous and hurry.
Renewal of the two last finals of the Copa America in the match for the 3rd place should bring some salt to this meeting and motivate the teams on the game in full force and effect despite the bad mood after defeats. This will be a hot match and the bronze medal can become some kind of silver lining.
For Argentina, it is very important to win over Chile and for the Golden generation of Chile, it is the last opportunity to win something else and to add the bronze medal to two wins. That is why it is not a surprise that this match will end with a series of penalty shootouts.
